About GelStat Corporation
GelStat Corporation is dedicated to providing safe and effective over-the-counter (OTC) treatments for pain and inflammation. GelStat's first product, GelStat Migraine, is sold nationwide through retail chain stores, independent retailers and pharmacies, and direct to consumer channels. GelStat Migraine is a sublingually (under the tongue) administered OTC medication for acute relief from the pain and associated symptoms of migraine. Over 90 percent of the 30 million Americans with migraine use OTC headache remedies, generally aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Americans spend $2.6 billon each year on 600 million units of such products, although they are believed to be effective for only about 25 percent of those with moderate to severe migraine.
The Company also has a suite of additional, effective healthcare products that address large consumer markets. GelStat(TM)Arthritis is the second available product to utilize GelStat's patent-pending formulation and is provided as a daily use, sublingual dissolving tablet. The Center for Disease Control estimates that, in its many forms, arthritis affects up to 70 million Americans. The Company has also developed "GelStat(TM)Sinus" and "GelStat(TM)Sleep," and believes that each of these products performs well and is effective for its intended use. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease estimates that 37 million Americans are affected by sinusitis every year, with at least 20 million more suffering from allergies. Approximately 70 million Americans are reported to be "problem sleepers." For more information, visit www.gelstat.com.
